I'm willing to bet that I know what the majority of you will be doing on this Thursday night. It's probably the same thing I will be doing now. Watching "Scandal" on ABC, right?
For the life of me, I don't know how I have managed to go all this time without watching this show. I mean, it feels like I have been keeping up with the show already just be being on Facebook each Thursday. You can actually get a full play-by-play update as the show is going...but only during commercial breaks.
I got a little curious a couple of weeks ago and decided to tune in to get an understanding of this phenomenon. I had to see what the hoopla was all about.
What was so special about this show that has people putting their lives on hold to watch it?
How can one show make the world stand still when it comes on?
What kind of drug is this?
Twenty minutes into the show and it was almost as if I was immediately hooked. I didn't even catch from the beginning. I hardly knew the characters and there I was wondering what was gonna happen next. Not only was I glued to the TV set, I, too, had to take to Facebook and talk about it....only when the commercial came on though.
The only thing I could say was, "Guess I'll be watching Scandal now." And it was true.
After the episode ended, I had tons of questions. How did things start off? How did the characters get to that point? Who was this guy? Who was that guy? I was intrigued and I needed answers NOW!
Then I was reminded that I needed to get a hold of myself. I could find out all the answers I needed just by going to ABC's website and catching up on all of the episodes I'd not seen. So, guess how I have been spending my free time?
However, as I'm writing I'm thinking to myself: "Under other circumstances, this could actually be a cry for help." Lol
But I'd better get a grip. One day this series will have to come to an end. And the last thing I'll need is to have to take a 12-step program to deal with my "Scandal" withdrawals.
